Quilt progress

Laying out the quilt squares to plan my quilt - I deliberately did not overthink this process, and just went with my gut so it was quite a quick procedure:

I labeled them with pinned on sticky notes so that I'd sew them together in the right order. I decided to do the quilt in blocks of 16 or 12 and then sew the big blocks together:

Then on another day I started piecing the blocks together:

A sneak preview - I wanted to see how it would look on my bed (Grant's pillows are missing because he was napping in the guest room):

I also laid out the second quilt - these blocks will have white sashing between them. I did buy white fabric but it's too thin and I need to get some that is thicker so that will have to wait:

    1. Thank you :) What I like about quilts is it is done in sections - I don't think I have the patience to do it all in one go.
